Nice post Vapors. I know that the Raven Space from Baltimore gets a lot of attention but I still think this is the best show from the spring tour. The 1st set is especially well played, with a great Deep Elem and the 2nd set is sold all the way through. Jerry still looked reasonably healthy at this time (see the Letterman interview you posted yesterday) and played very well in all of 1982. Spring 1983 is where Jerry really started to look bad, yet many people never picked up on his problems.

Fine show indeed. Love it. As for folks not noticing Jerry's beginning descent into the abyss, it was always nice to have a pair of Ray-Ban Jerry Blinders. The special tint made it only possible to see the best in the man, blocking out the sad portents of things to come. But, the man did have some fine shows left in him for quite some time.
